View Full Version : [ubuntu] Desktop text not working

November 7th, 2012, 09:30 AM
I've been having this problem since yesterday where my desktop doesn't render any text properly, instead it renders empty white rectangles. Terminals opened on the desktop, menus accessed from the header and most control panels all have this problem. Programs like Firefox and emacs do not have this problem, possibly due to having their own text rendering. Any ideas on how to fix this?

Same problem here when trying to access 12.10 through NX. If I do it through VNC it works.
